Custom Built Saddles, Tack, and Accessories
Custom Saddle Blankets
Lisa Cope produces two types of custom blankets. Some are made with homespun wool yarn from her mother’s sheep and the others are made from colorful custom-dyed yarn made for durability against wear and the sun.
For the homespun blankets, Lisa and her mother, Mary Sellhorn, work together in the “hobby” room spinning and weaving to create these unique saddle blankets. The hand-woven yarn is not dyed; the colors are the natural colors of the sheep. The sheep in the Sellhorn flock are white, black and gray. The older black sheep give a variation of gray colors to add to the natural wool palate of colors. Mary proudly calls them by name, “This is Gracie, Sophie, and Gladys.” she explains as she shows the white, black and gray blankets.

When you purchase a Cope Saddlery blanket, plain wear leathers are added to your blanket to increase the life of your saddle blanket. Ryan creates these unique wear-leathers with saddle-quality leather and latigo lace so they enhance the look of the blanket. Custom designs and tooling can be added to the wear leathers for an additional fee.
A practical and distinctive use for the saddle blankets is for trophy presentations with the custom wear leathers tooled with your special event and the date.
